The latest installment of the Dune saga takes place immediately following the events in Dune Messiah (1969). Paul, now blind, has walked into the sand, as a proper Fremen is bound to do; his sister, Alia, is regent for Paul's children and trying to hold his empire together; and Jessica, mother of Paul and Alia, now lives on Caladan, where she is the duchess. Paul has lived with plots and threats ever since he overthrew and exiled the former emperor, Shaddam Corrino. But these potential problems multiply at his death, and those individuals who ought to be his allies don't trust each other. Should the Princess Irulan, Paul's wife of state, be allowed to live or be killed as a precaution? Why has Bronso of Ix, once Paul's friend, turned against the House of Atreides? The authors give a sturdy structure to Frank Herbert's story line, but the actual technological changes of the past 45 years have diminished the plausibility of the extended saga. In spite of this problem, the novel delivers solid action and will certainly satisfy Dune fans. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
